IN MEMORIAM

It is with great sadness we announce the death of the Oregon Eagle Learning Center’s director, Mr. William Pasztor. Bill had been ill for many months, but that did not stop him from being totally dedicated to the center and its students.
Bill’s desire and vision to help young people reach their goals led to the inception of the Oregon Eagle Learning Center. Over the past four years, Bill has been devoted to the success of ELC students. He felt great satisfaction and pride when a student earned his/her high school diploma.
Bill’s positive attitude and invincible spirit will be missed in the lives of all who knew him.
